About the Author
Brian Tracy is one of the most dynamic, effective, and successful speakers in the world. He has given more than 5,000 talks to at least 5 million people in 46 countries over the past 25 years. Last year, BusinessWeek listed him among the Top 10 brand names in the motivational speaking and training business. In terms of annual earning power, Tracy ranked behind only Stephen Covey, Tony Robbins, and Deepak Chopra, and ahead of Suze Orman, Zig Ziglar, Tom Hopkins, Dr. Phil, the Chicken Soup for the Soul guys, and Ken Blanchard.
As a consultant and author, as well as a speaker and seminar leader, Tracy specializes in personal and professional development, productivity, and achievement. He has worked with trade associations, local businesses, and global corporations—Bank of America, IBM, and Verizon, for starters—among hundreds of clients. He has written 45 books, and counting, which have been translated into 36 languages and are sold today in 52 countries. His acclaimed and popular titles include the Wall Street Journal bestseller Focal Point, The Power of Charm, Create Your Own Future, Eat That Frog! , and Goals.
In SPEAK TO WIN: How to Present with Power in Any Situation (AMACOM 2008), Tracy shares his time-tested delivery and preparation secrets with speakers of all accomplishment and comfort levels. On the strength of his lifelong experience—Tracy started talking and selling door-to-door before he reached puberty—and his passion for the arts of rhetoric and persuasion, he is an exceptional teacher. “Fortunately,” as he acknowledges, “becoming a master speaker and business communicator is a learnable skill.”
Tracy got serious about a career in sales at the age of 30—after dropping out of high school and spending about a decade wandering aimlessly. Moving from town to town across the United States and Canada, he worked—washing dishes, cars, and floors; toiling on farms and in factories; pumping gas; stacking lumber—to avoid starvation. Finally, he returned to his home state of California, landed a sales job, and committed himself to succeeding. To his surprise, Tracy discovered a way to achieve ambitious goals consistently. By concentrating his thoughts and efforts on “high-value” tasks with the greatest potential for reward, he soared to the top of his organization and far beyond. After succeeding in several businesses, Tracy decided to go into business for himself, teaching others his successful strategies, tactics, and mindset.
Brian Tracy is now the president of three companies and an online university, the Brian Tracy University of Sales and Entrepreneurship, offering training and certificates to ambitious people worldwide. Married and the father of four grown children, he lives in Solana Beach, California.
